Bellingham Circus Guild

We are a collection of professional and hobby circus artists. Our mission is to assist and support the circus arts community of Whatcom County, to promote circus arts to the community at-large, and to radically proliferate delight at every opportunity.

The Guild’s Bellingham facility (the “Cirque Lab”) serves as an arena for events, classes, and practice space for members. As a consensus-run collective, we strive to provide a forum for communication and connection among the circus arts community of Whatcom County and the Pacific Northwest. We promote and support circus arts in Bellingham and beyond through classes, open studio times, and shows. Above all, we aim to play like we mean it and encourage others to do the same.
